Artiestinformatie


Prog rock band, opgericht in 1967 door Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks en Peter Gabriel.

De band is in eerste instantie populair in hun thuisland Engeland. In 1970 voegt zanger/drummer Phil Collins zich bij de band en beginnen ze grote hits te scoren. Peter Gabriel heeft er in 1975 genoeg van en verlaat de band.

Na vele audities voor een nieuwe zanger besluit Collins om de zang en drums te verzorgen en gaat Genesis door als een 3-mans band nadat ook gitarist Steve Hackett op stapt. In 1978 scoort de band voor het eerst in Nederland met de single Follow You Follow Me. Ook Turn It On Again en Abacab halen de lijst. Collins neemt vanaf 1981 ook solo albums op maar blijft bij Genesis. In 1983 behalen ze de top 10 met de single Mama. Ook Land Of Confusion van het album Invisible Touch wordt een top 10 hit. In 1991 verschijnt het laatste album met Collins, We Can't Dance. Het album levert 5 hits op. No Son Of Mine, Jesus He Knows, Tell Me Why, Hold On My Heart en de grootste is I Can't Dance dat in 1992 op nummer 1 van de Top 40 belandt. In 1996 maakt Collins bekend dat hij uit de band stapt. Rutherford en Banks gaan door met een nieuwe zanger Ray Wilson en brengen het album Calling All Stations uit maar het succes is over. In 2007 komen Collins, Rutherford en Banks nog eenmaal bij elkaar voor een reunie toernee.

Songtekst

Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I'm wrong, when I thought I was right
It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell me it's black when I know that it's white
It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

I could leave but I won't go
Though my heart might tell me so
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
So why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

Turning me on, turning me off
Making me feel like I want too much
Living with you's just putting me through it all of the time
Running around, staying out all night
Taking it all instead of taking one bite
Living with you's just putting me through it all of the time

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
But why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

Truth is I love you
More that I wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend
There's been no-one who
Makes me feel like you do
Say we'll be together till the end

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
So why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

But I love you
More that I wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend
There's been no-one who
Makes me feel like you do
Say we'll be together till the end

Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I'm wrong, when I thought I was right
It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell me it's black when I know that it's white
It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all - that's all
